Lyon, France - September 19th, 2018
Gattefossé announces the launch of its first ever hair care ingredient at in-cosmetics latin america (booth G20). Our researchers have applied their knowledge in lipochemistry to develop an ingredient that mimics the beneficial conditioning and protective properties of hair sebum without the greasiness.

Central to the composition are high molecular weight esters found in the hull of the sunflower seed and in jojoba seeds. These esters are reacted with polyglycerol to improve spreading on the hair surface and to ensure a homogeneous film. Tests demonstrate that hair regains hydrophobicity and is protected from humidity and frizz. The hair becomes easier to manage and is smooth to the touch, also style is maintained
for longer.
